Day 2 Challenge – Get up 2 hours early on day 3 and write. Write for 2 solid hours? This presented a few challenges for me.
1. When to actually get up and get going. Right now, 2 hours early is a relative term. Since I’m not working, timing of getting up/waking up/getting out of bed has fluctuated between 6:30 and 10.
2. Where to write. My office? The living room? The kitchen table?
3. What to write about? Stream of consciousness? Start a project? Blog post? Will there be any words at all?
So yesterday I planned and worried. I planned to get out of bed by 7am. I planned to write in my office, which involved a serious amount of clean up. (Seems my office had become the junk catch-all room for the last few months.) I worried about how and what to write. Pen to paper or finger to keyboard? Worry is a demon that will try and choke the life out of all plans and dreams.
This morning I am happy to report that I met all of my challenges. I was out of bed by 6:50, walked into my clean office, turned on the laptop and wrote for two hours.
On to Day 3.
